DVDRW drive stops loading information part way through install..
DVDRW drive reaches a certain point and seems to stop loading information onto hard drive. It has done this today while I'm trying to install Office 2003. It did it a few days ago while trying to copy DVD. One of the small blue icons stays lit - but the Installation Progress bar doesn't move. Do I need a new drive or driver?

Re: DVDRW drive stops loading information part way...

Note: If the STOP 0x0000007B error occurs during the Windows
setup process and you suspect that the reason is driver related, be sure
to install the latest hard drive controller driver from the
manufacturer for use during the installation of the operating system.
Note: This is a likely solution if the second hexadecimal numberafter the STOP code is 0xC0000034.
Change the SATA mode in BIOS to IDE mode. Disabling some of the advanced features of SATA
drives in BIOS could stop the STOP 0x0000007B error from showing up,
especially if you're seeing it in Windows XP or during a Windows XP
Note: Depending on your BIOS make and version, SATA mode may be referred to as AHCI mode and IDE mode may be referred to as either Legacy, ATA, or Compatibility Mode.
Note: While not a common solution, you may also want to try the
reverse - see if IDE mode is selected in BIOS and if so change it to
AHCI, especially if you see the STOP 0x0000007B error in Windows 8,
Windows 7, or Windows Vista.
Replace the hard drive if the diagnostics you complete suggest that there is a hardware problem with the drive.
Run the fixmbr command to create a new master boot record. A corrupted master boot record might be causing your STOP 0x0000007B error.
Note: This will likely be the solution if the second hexadecimal number after the STOP code is 0xC000000E.
Clear the CMOS. Sometimes the STOP 0x0000007B error is caused by a BIOS memory issue. Clearing the CMOS could solve that problem.
Update your BIOS.
In some situations, an outdated BIOS could cause a STOP 0x0000007B
error due to incompatibilities with a hard drive controller.
Update the hard drive controller's firmware if possible. Just as
with the BIOS in the previous step, an incompatibility could be causing
the 0x7B error and a firmware update from the manufacturer may correct the problem.
In Windows XP, The STOP: 0×0000007B: error often occurs if you move a hard drive that contains Windows XP to another computer or if you have just installed a newmotherboard or drive controller. This error occurs in these cases because your registry does not contain driver entries for the current motherboards drive controller. So in effect, the device driver that Windows XP is loading from the registry will not work with the new drive controller.
Fixing the STOP: 0×0000007B: Error: The easiest approach to fixing the error is to locate download and install the latest hard drive controller driver for your motherboard. In many cases the driver in question controls a ATA or SATA device. There are other problems including viruses that can cause this error and information regarding these causes can be found HERE
You need to get into 'setup' (watch the screen as it starts) and delete the hard drive, then reinstall it. Be sure to save and exit. When windows starts to install, it will see an un-formatted drive and offer to format it. Select 'NT' file type and let it proceed. Windows will install as on a fresh drive.
Could be a number of problems, including but not limited to...
1) NTFS file structure is corrupt 2) MBR has been compromised (corrupt) 3) ATA/SATA drivers are corrupt 4) Hard drive is on the way out
Boot your computer using the OS install disk, and run CHKDSK /f from within the recovery console. CHKDSK /p will repair a corrupted NTFS file system (if that's the problem).
If CHKDSK options don't fix the problem, or if the drive is not recognized by your OS, it may be your MBR (Master Boot Record). Use the command fixmbr from within recovery console, then reboot.
MBR may be data destructive, so it's best to use CHKDSK options first. Also, if you are able to get the system to boot up, you'll want to save/recover any data on the hard drive, then run thorough diagnostics on the drive to make sure it's not on the way out (contact Dell for further information regarding this).
it sounds like bad hard drive to me, when you started hearing noises you should have been backing up stuff on to anther drive, anyways replace the drive and boot from your windows cd and life should be good again. after you have everything working you can try to add the hard drive to the secondary and see if you can recover any files.
